Taylor Swift premiered the music video for her new single ‘Bad Blood’ last night at the Billboard Music Awards. And it is a movie!
Produced by Swift herself and directed by Joseph Kahn, the video for ‘Bad Blood’ is an epic, mini summer blockbuster. The video features starring roles from Emmy winners, Golden Globe winners, Grammy winners, an Oscar nominee as well as both upcoming and iconic supermodels, including Lily Aldridge, Zendaya, Gigi Hadid, Lena Dunham, Jessica Alba, Kendrick Lamar, Selena Gomez, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevigne and more. All of whom chose their individual character's name and persona.
‘Bad Blood’ is the fourth single to be released and is taken from Taylor's history breaking new album ‘1989’. Originally appearing on the album without any featured artists, Taylor Swift calls on Top Dawg's Kendrick Lamar for the brand new remixed version of ‘Bad Blood’, where we see him as ‘Welvin Da Great’ in the visuals below.
Originally on the same team, Catastrophe (Taylor Swift) and Arsyn (Selena Gomez) are seen defeating their nemesis before a turn around happens and Arsyn ends up stabbing Catastrophe in the back. With bad blood now between them, the ex-friends go their separate ways and eventually end up forming their own teams.
